in this conversation. one thing obama and the white house has said the they want to talk to our allies, talk to the u.n., get that engagement. that is something we have seen them talk about from the beginning. they want to act with allies and the rest of the world community behind them. part of what they're doing right now is talking with those leaders, talking with the u.n., seeing what that means. it sends a message to countries like north korea that we will be acting. to be the only guy facing a bunch of other guys, it makes it easier for them to make their point. host: seung min kim, we see a headline in "the wall street journal" looking at the delays in airports and the faa what is the latest. >> a new law has been passed to allow the faa to reconfigure their filing so you do not have all these delays at the airport. this is all part of the sequester. the across-the-board cuts were supposed to hit everyone pretty evenly, but people were getting angry, long lines, including members of congress, so when the delays started to get along bear, congress look at it. >> i was as different from other iss
was critic of bushes gave gracious comments. obama who heretofore has not said much nice about the predecessor even if n the white house several unveiling the official portrait said very few things about the president. gave expanse i and generous and gracious comments. also that was interesting at the private lunch following event, president obama threw out a line that was a great line. i suspect it would have been better if he used it publicly. he said i learned a lot from the predecessor, once you get in the job, you understand how difficult the job really is. i learned how difficult it is to throw out the ball, the first pitch of a game. and how hard it is to ride a bike. from my predecessor. it was a note of humility and humor and graciousness. >> bill: good. glad to hear that. glad to hear that. you heard the barney frank interview. i wanted to get your opinion on why you think the president doesn't say the words "islamic jihad." know it was the motivator for the two to go up and kill an 8-year-old boy, three other americans and wound 200. but barack obama simply will not
to be the next u.s. trade representative. froman is a former executive at citigroup. mr.obama made the announcements in the white house rose garden. >> i've had a chance to get to know penny and mike not just as leaders and professionals but also as friends. one of the reasons i'm proud to nominate them is they don't forget what matters. they know this is not about just growing balance sheets. it's about growing opportunity for people. it's about growing a sense of security for the middle class. and most of all they operate with integrity and they understand that public service is a privilege. >> holman: both nominees are predicted to have easy senate confirmations. one final cabinet nomination remains to lead the small business administration. there were reports out of syria today that 50 to 100 people, including women and children, were killed by government troops and gunmen. the british based syrian observatory for human rights said president assad's forces took over a village near the mediterranean coast. many reportedly were executed by gunfire or knives. people who fled said
i think one of the reasons why obama went after these high profile things, like air travel and white house tours is because he wanted to try to prove that we just couldn't live without big government. but the irony now is that with the sequester has shown is yes, we can, in fact, live without big government and big spending and secondly, that government is completely screwed up at all levels. they can't set appropriate priorities. there is no common sense in government at all. >> well, look, i don't disagree that we have big problems with our government. we need to rein in spending, taxes, entitlement. we just can't afford big government or bad government. but monica, i think it's actually something a little worse. if i can be so bold. i think the obama administration thought that the sequester would be blamed on the republicans, more pain, more problems for the republicans. it's actually, according to the polls, backfired on the administration and that's why i think there has been some movement towards accommodation from the president and the white house towards reaching a deal. bot
in the blast. now, look to the man in the white cap. that's the suspect, tzaernaev. also the bomb circled on the right. >>> president obama is marking the 100th day of his second term. at a press sweeping today he defended fbi's previous investigation of one of the suspects in the boston bombing. >> they not only investigated the older brother, they interviewed the older brother. they concluded that there were no signs that he was engaging in extremist activity. >> the president rejected criticism that the fbi didn't do enough after the russian government asked to investigate tamerlan. the review is under way. >>> the if the u.s. can confirm the syrian government used chemical weapons against its own people. regulators suspect the regime used gas against rebel forces. the president and administration have said no action will be taken until there is conclusive proof chemical weapons were used. >>> new information tonight at the case against the man accused of sending ricin-laced letters to three officials including the president. in an affidavit the fbi says items found at james everrett s
served as director of the white house domestic policy council during president obama's first term and joins me now. so someone might ask, we haven't had one for a year, we've had an acting secretary, roberta blank, think, why do we need a secretary of commerce, what does the secretary of commerce really do as the president fills out his cabinet. >> exactly, it's a pleasure to be here with you, as always. i think it's a very, very important job. what we've seen over the years, looking at even through past administrations, is that the secretary of commerce is often an ambassador between the administration and the business community and an important part of an economic team. becky blank did a vafantastic j as the interim secretary. she's got a lot of credibility. but having someone in there of penny's stature and someone who is a business person and someone who is taken seriously by the business community i think will be very, very important for the administration. >> one question that i've been looking at frankly is there are no assistant secretaries of state. ambassadors from all o
, but bush well knows about them. will you go to the white house correspondent with me? when obama came in, there was a lot of electricity, history making, bombs and that's what tom brokaw was reacting to. it became a complete originally of celebrity spotting and taking iphone pictures with people and it got kind of ridiculous. >> do you miss the good old days, john? >> i don't care for this event very much. i think it's gotten way out of control. i think the comments last year had some impact and it was slightly tamped down. >> really? >> not a lot. >> to me, the only disappointing piece of this is the whole point of this dinner is to raise money for the scholarship. >> no, that's not the point of the dinner. >> aus tebsbly, that's the point of the dinner. that's $300,000. and you think about the millions of dollars that these organizationes and companies and everybody who shows up spends and to think that this all they're doing is taking in a couple hundred thousands for the scholarships -- >> the point of the dinner is to make everybody in the room feel cool and important. and that's wh

] [ beeping ] red or blue? >> we're waiting to take you life to the white house. president obama getting set to start at 10:00 eastern. do we know what the president is likely to say? i don't know of any particular announcement he's going to open the press conference with, but he's preparing to go to mexico on a trip. he's ended the hundred days of his second term. the first hundred days although that doesn't mean very much in the success term and the president is simply kind of taking this moment to try to seize the initiative in washington having gotten past the flight delay issue last week, gotten congress to -- or congress decided itself to resolve that issue without resolving the rest of the sequester and i expect one thing he might do, simon is to press the case that there are many, many other effects of the sequester beyond flight delays that are of concern to poor americans and people benefitting from government services, headstart, meals on wheels and that sort of thing to get the republicans into negotiation to put the sequester aside and look for a budget deal. >> it is a news con
people. senior white house officials say the u.s. is considering sending weapons to rebel fighters. a move seen as a serious escalation and one that president obama rejected last year. >> all right, now to the legal battle over the morning after pill. the justice department says a new york judge overstepped his bounds when he ordered all age restrictions on the pill lifted. now the government is a peeling the judge's order arguing his decision should be suspended for now. >> many of us are finally enjoying some ideal springtime weather. others are dig out their cars from deep snow. take a look at fort collins, colorado. the snow is so heavy and wet, it is snapping tree branches. as much as 20 inches fell in some spots. from the rockies well into the midwest. meanwhilen southern california, strong winds are pushing a wildfire that forced some people from their homes. it has burned some 3,000 acres already along with one home and several vehicles. one fire fighter has been injured, battling this blaze. it is unclear how it starteded and officials are not saying whether they expect to
the white house is under growing pressure to take some kind of action. so far president obama has been reluctant to get involved, but as abc's jonathan karl reports that may be changing. >> reporter: embattled syrian president bashar al assad the man accused of using chemical weapons on his own people made his first public appearance in more than a month appearing entirely at ease on syrian state tv, touring an electrical plant in damascus. the white house is turning up the heat. >> syria's future cannot include assad. his hands are bathed in blood, the blood of his own people. he has no place in syria's future and no support from the syrian people. >> reporter: senior u.s. officials say the administration is now considering sending weapons to rebel fighters. they have requested anti-aircraft and anti-tank weapons. abc news has learned the first nonmilitary aid to rebel fighters arrived in syria and more is in the pipeline. including body armor, military vehicles, and night vision goggles. sending weapons would be a big escalation, and a move that president obama rejected last year out

anniversary of something called joining forces, veterans hiring initiative lost by the white house years ago. american companies have already hired some 290,000 veterans. we need them to do more. michele obama announced plans to hire another 435,000 veterans over just the next five years. our next guest is a big part of this effort. siemens, a german industrial giant that has a day operation here in the u.s. a new job training program to help our veterans stepping up to the plate with breaking news on this. u.s.a. ceo. you may remember him because he was called up by the president during his state of the union address as a company it is creating jobs here in the u.s. you hear of specific pieces. big news which will be officially announced in less than half an hour. that is it. >> we have been a big part of joining forces. we hired over a thousand. one of the things we found is that veterans want to get into higher-paying jobs, more technical jobs. they have good technical but need more. we are announcing a new initiative tired veterans and to our software technology business. we're going to
, white americans especially we said would never be able to do that. and i think one of the moments that, for me, was so powerful during the election was the time when obama actually had to come out and talk explicitly about race. because one of the things -- >> he did it here if philadelphia. >> he did it right here in philadelphia. one of the ironies, there's so many ironies in our contemporary political moment, but one of the most powerful ones is the first black president is the one who can talk the least about race. it's the third, fourth and fifth rail for that -- i mean, there's something about race that he knows he can't discuss, and part of what he tried to do in that moment at least was to say let me say something th think is going to bring people together that's forward thinking, and then hopefully i'll never have to bring it up again. and there's something about that, i think, in some ways that is quintessential paranoia. the idea is americans are so fatigued about race, they're so resistant to thinking about racial inclusion that to even bring up the idea of race too often m
handled the question on how they got the solution to the furloughs and white lace? i is that such a challenge? lou: it is a challenge because it does not fit this president goals. these are the forgotten people. these are the vanished in the obama era. it will be in history because the republicans, quite frankly, have no one in their leadership capable of creating a strategy. that will be the test for 2014. it is also unclear, you know, as they listen to the president his little charming thing today -- it was none of those things. it was as if they were still too proximate to the white house press corps and dinner. a little too thoughtful about one another's questions and answers. there was no real contention between the questioner and the person called upon to answer. it is a tiring job. a lot of responsibility. when you spew rhetoric like redline and game changer when you are talking about foreign policy then you have to walk all of that crap back and try to be a rational man -- by the way, we have to give him credit. he is being responsible on syria. he had to walk
perspective. they look at president obama different than the older generation. the black-white paradigm i think is going to shift. i mean we've got to get brown in their you know? i think that's happening. that is happening. we do not need to have a dramatic kind of upheaval in order to change. that's important. >> i think you're right. i think the paradigm has already shifted. and i think there's a new context that is being, new concept rather. a new construct has already built. since winter, somebody kind of hinted before i go to tom, about the next generation, the future of education. so brown is in the mix. we are no longer america's favorite minority, and i'm okay with that. [laughter] my feelings aren't hurt. we at least got a black president out of it last night and now -- [laughter] this is your area. >> you all had a longtime. >> i ain't mad at you spent the bad news is we got you surrounded. the good news is we come in peace. [laughter] >> here's the question. speaking of coming in peace there is conflict there. there is conflict in communities communities, black brown trying t
reconnect business to the white house? >> that's the hope of the administration, certainly. she's somebody who had a close relationship with obama as a fund-raiser, somebody from his hometown. the labor troubles that you mentioned will probably add to her credibility in dealing with business because so of of the suspicion that business people usually have of democrats is that they're too closed to organized labor. so that probably will help her in the confirmation fight with republicans although it makes some democrats uneasy. some people are uneasy with the whole idea of taking people who raise money for a candidate and put them in power. but i expect that she will overcome that, be confirmed and so will mike froman who has been serving the administration, as the president said, doing economic international policy. i expect, as they depart for mexico, he is likely to have a relatively smooth and low drama confirmation fight. >> interesting. despite the concerns the president expressed. thank you very much, john howard in washington. >>> the ecb and jobs numbers tomorrow, how can you play
obama will hold his first press conference, marking the first 100 days of his second term today and he will be taking questions on a wide range of issues. nbc's chief white house correspondent, chuck todd is in the briefing room for us. as i understand it not one of those occasions where the president is expected to come out and deliver a piece of news. >> that's right, savannah. if you think about just the last 15 days, when you have the boston marathon investigation, those bombings are continuing. you have this sequester standoff over the airports and faa funding. and then now throw in the issue with syria, there's a lot on the table. is white houses love to have press conferences when congress is out of town. congress happens to be out of town this week so they get washington and the spin cycle to themselves. so, put all that together and the fact that this is that -- one of those mythical markers that the white house claims they don't follow but they just happen to schedule a press conference today, the first 100 dives that second term. and you have all of it coming together for a
